Morris In The Morning

Herb Alpert is what you call a real music man. He’s a musician and co-founder of one of the most famous music labels A&M Records with his partner Jerry Moss. I first recall hearing Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass back in grade school on my little AM radio.  Well, I’m far removed from that AM radio and Herb is still at it. His latest single Dance With Me is appropriately titled because from the first note, your feet will start moving.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK invites you to join us in watching The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song, PBS documentary series by Dr. Henry Louis Gates premiering in Atlanta PBS Tuesday, February 16 at 9pm. This powerful documentary explores the church’s powerful influence as the spiritual, cultural, and political epicenter of the African American community. WCLK's Morris 'In The Morning' Baxter, host of Morning Jazz Monday-Fridays 6a-10a, was asked to be part of a Black History Month effort for Elizabeth Baptist Church in Southwest Atlanta.
